Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Production will resume from next week. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Letitia Wright, who was injured in an accident on a movie set in August last year, has recovered and is back in Atlanta for a movie shoot.
Production was originally scheduled to resume last week, but the outlet reported that several cast and crew, including actor Lupita Nyongo, were delayed after testing positive for COVID-19. In August last year, Wright was injured while filming a scene with a stunt rig in Boston.
While she was recovering at her home in London, the crew filmed as much as possible without Wright, but production finally stopped in November.
In the upcoming superhero film, Wright will reprise his role as the brilliant Tech Wiz and Wakanda princess Shuri.
Along with director Ryan Kugler, the original cast members Danai Guerrero, Daniel Caluea, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyongo, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett are also returning.
Wakanda Forever is the sequel to the 2018 global hit Black Panther, titled Hollywood star Chadwick Boseman, who died on August 28, 2020 in a four – year private battle with colon cancer.
The second part will be released on November 11, 2022.
